      I have been looking the idea to accept some jobs offers at the uk cause the better professional environment and also the wage in pounds.

      But during this year I have seen that the pound has drop from 1.50 euro at the beginning of the year to a 1.39 today and with BoE lowering rates and BCE mantaining it or even uppering rateds soon seem posible more depreciation of the pound against the euro.

      Is this a great problem for brits with a mortgage in a property in spain but a wage or pension in pounds?

      Well, it is a 10% salary/pension cut… Depends how much was the intial figure.
      Cut 10% from £5000 and still get £4500 which is still a good figure.
      Cut 10% from a very low £500 and get an even lower £450 which is bad figure.

      Depends on personal circumstances and in property if your buying or selling.
      Of course that exact senario without looking into many other factors it would be negative.
      No straight answer to this one I feel as tooo many factors come into it.
      Same as the stock market currency variations are factor and for some its positive but equally negative for some.
      Now why do I think that here the negative reasoning will win 😯

      If someone was selling in spain and returning to the UK they would get more GBP for their euro so they would be better off.

      If buying a property here for 200,000 euros about 6 weeks ago it would have cost them 136,986, today144,927GBP

      If someone is paying a 1000 euro mortgage, 6 weeks ago 675 GBP today 724GBP. Figures app. just an example of how it affects the UK market.

      Hi all

      Back to the top of the topic, its a huge poblem for british buyers and sellers alike.
      Sellers of less actractive stuff ie location etc and who have been on the market already for 18 months or more and will not reduce there price for what ever reason stand bob hope and no hope of selling.

      Whatever serious buyers that are left will either have to lower there budget. negociate harder or find more stirling,simple as that.

      Of course, as ive said before the british can always do a deal in sterling
